CORBIN, Ky. (WYMT) - People in the Corbin area looking for motorsports trails, look no further.

A new trail, named “I Be Dam”, opened recently in downtown Corbin.

“We have really, in the last year or two, seen a tremendous rise in motorsports and motorsport trends,” said Maggy Monhollen, Executive Director of the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission

The trail was created by the nonprofit Backroads of Appalachia, the Whitley County Motorcycle Group and the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission.

“The reason why we called it ‘I Be Dam’ is because they got a beautiful dam you drive over and I think It’s gonna be a wonderful thing for the community, it’s gonna be a wonderful thing for the outdoor enthusiasts who come out and explore,” said Erik Hubbard, Director of Backroads of Appalachia.

The trail is more than 35 miles in total.

“I Be Dam” starts and ends in downtown, goes around the lake and over the Laurel River Dam.

”We’re always looking for ways to fulfill the needs of our travelers,” said Monhollen. “Everybody kind of has, whether its history, adventure, family travel, so, this really just enables us to have one more thing that can serve people coming into the area and their interests.

To help launch the “I Be Dam” trail, the Corbin Tourism and convention commission will be hosting their 20th annual Cumberland Valley Cruise-In July 9th, featuring hundreds of cars and motorcycles and offering family fun to the people of the region.
